Development Officer

Launched in 2016 to enhance the visibility, resilience and sustainability of the region’s creative communities, Sheffield Creative Guild is a membership cooperative for any individual, business or organisation working in the creative sector.

Over the past 3 years we have expanded our membership to over 800 whilst at the same time growing our small staff team. We have worked consistently with a range of partners including Museums Sheffield, the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University. We sit on the Sheffield Culture Consortium and act as a powerful lobbying voice for our members in the region and beyond.

We host a varied and busy annual events programme from workshops and showcases to socials and parties, last year alone we hosted over 30 events across the city. Our timebank platform enables members to share knowledge and skills, reinterpreting traditional economic perceptions of value. So far over 300 hours of skills have been traded which has enabled members to collaborate and grow new projects, learn new skills and generally just get stuff done.

We are a young organisation with a big ambition to develop and grow. We are about to embark on developing a physical city centre space for both the organisation and our members, we’re at an exciting stage in our evolution and we’re looking for an energetic, organised and driven person to join the team and, with support, work to see the Guild continues to grow and flourish.
